Most home feature issues can be resolved by either a simple fix or a replacement. Both these solutions can be costly, however, so choosing the right option matters to ensure a successful outcome. For your roofing system, here are instances that may suggest it’s best to call for a roofing expert for a new installation.
- There is organic growth on the roof. Remember that moss is a great concern. This, and mold can grow quickly and spread throughout the surface of the roof. This also means that there is too much moisture in the system, which is compromising its strength and durability.
- There are leaks in the attic. If you think that you may need a roof replacement soon, the first place to check is the attic space for leaks. You can have someone climb up under the eaves for inspection.
- The shingles are damaged. Checking the condition of the roof is essential, especially following a storm. If you find some cracked, buckling or missing shingles, then repairs may be in order. However, if shingle granules are collecting in the gutters, your roof may be at the end of its lifespan.
- The roof has reached its expiration date. Each roofing item has its own expiration date. While a clay or metal roof can last for over five decades, an asphalt shingle roof usually expires within two decades. Should your current roof has sustained structural damage over the years and is nearing the end of its life, it’s best to consider replacing it.
